7:02 am
in jail policy and questions if that change brought racial tensions to a boiling point. you may remember madrch 3rd a near riot broke out at the jail. the documents we obtained show six days before that fight a memo was sent to the staff to abandon a safety policy u enacted in 2014 limiting the amount of time mixed race inmates could spend with each other. five days later the sheriff went shopping at costco and bought cameras with her own credit card that were then installed in the jail. then the next day the fight broke out. we spoke rick callendar and the jail commission and he says the documents are sure to raise a lot of questions. >> this doesn't look good. obviously, there was a release of the moem moe that said clearly there was problems with african-american and latino inmates in jails. and then after that there was another memo that said let's
7:03 am
release them together and did not give a reason to withdraw the policy. it's suggesting there's larger problems. there's a crisis of leadership. i think we need federal oversight in the jail. we need change immediately. >> we had multiple conversations with the sheriff's department last night. other official response is no comment. developing in the east bay, an 8-year-old boy u is recovering this morning after being hit in the drive by shooting. he was shot in the upper body. police are looking for this man james gerard, allegedly connected to the shooting. he has a large tattoo on his neck. there's a $1 million warrant for his arrest. it happened at 6:00 last night u u. the boy was playing with other kids outside his home on lasalle avenue when a gunshot sent him to the hospital. many neighbor who is did not want to show their faces on

7:05 am
ultimately led to the surmise of the victim passing away yesterday. >> the suspect ran off with a female accomplice. police are offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to their arrest. on the wrong side of the law, a 14-year veteran of the santa clara police force is accused of trying to sell stolen car parts. the investigation began when a man tried to buy an engine on craig craigslist. this is a picture from his facebook page. the buy er suspected the parts were stolen and investigators say green used a san jose garage to stow four engines each worth more than $15,000 and we talked to one of the neighbors who was in disbelief. >> i'm totally surprised. i had not heard anything about this. my interaction with them is he's always been and continue to be a very nice family. >> in a statement santa clara

7:16 am
